We present a large contemporary series of patients presenting with unreconstructable critical limb ischaemia and requiring amputation. As well as being an insight into the challenges faced with the implementation of a quality improvement framework. We also feel the results will better inform the practising vascular surgeon and patients about the risks of limb loss in the 21st century.
Keywords: Critical limb ischaemia, gangree, diabetes, bypass, angioplasty, perioperative, mortality
